"He probably didn't know. I'm sorry, Nessie," Landon said to me, as he gave my hand a squeeze, walking around a corner, and he pointed straight ahead. "There she is, Nessie. Do you want me to go back or do you want me to join you and your mother?"
"I think that I should talk to her alone for a minute but can you wait here?" I asked my best friend, sliding my hand out of his reluctantly, and I looked into his eyes.
As I watched him nod his head, I walked over to where my mother was where she was sitting on the floor with her knees against her chest. My father definitely had done a number on my mother when she was eighteen. I then sat down next to her, grabbing her hand, and she looked at me.
I looked at my beautiful daughter and I could see that Landon was nearby. Angela and Ben probably sent them my way after seeing me run off. This just wasn't happening to me. It couldn't. I never ever thought that I would run into Edward or Alice in a very long time. I felt like things were about to get more interesting if we stayed here. I knew that if we left that they would only track us down, so that option was out. At least, it was out for now, but I didn't even know what to do.
"Mom?" Renesmee spoke softly, as she looked over at me, and she grabbed my hands into her very own hands. "Are you all right?"
"No sweetie, I'm really not, but I don't want you in the middle of this," I told her with a sigh leaving my lips, as I stroked my thumb across her knuckles, and I glanced to Landon before looking to her. "You shouldn't be late to any of your classes, baby."
"No honey, I just need some time alone. I'll see you at lunch. I just need to be alone for right now," I told my daughter, offering her a friendly smile, and I let go of her hand. "Now, go on."
I frowned, as I saw Angela walking my way, and I stood up to my feet. As she approached me, I felt her pull me into her arms, and I bit down on my lower lip. I was going through so many emotions right now and I wrapped my arms around her waist. Without Angela or Ben, my life would be a mess, and I honestly thought I would be dead. As I took a step back, I saw Ben standing beside Angela, and I gave them both a sheepish smile.
"Oh Bella," Angela frowned, as she placed her hands on her hips, and she shook her head. "How was it? How was the class with them?"
"Horrible… it was beyond horrible. I have to sit in between the two of them. How cruel can this be, anyways? I don't know what I am going to do, and who knows how many more classes I am going to have with them, but I hope that I will get to have a class with either Emmett or Rose. I wouldn't even mind having class with Jasper for that matter."
"I don't mean to be nosy, but since I never asked you why you're so angry at Alice and Edward, can you tell me, Bella?" Ben asked, hoping that he wasn't overstepping his position, and he looked around.
"Edward left me in the woods after breaking my heart, Ben. He basically told me that he never ever loved me. Alice – well, I emailed her for months, and I got nothing. I know that if they knew I was pregnant, they would have stayed, but they didn't," I told him with a shake of my head, as I took a look around, seeing the empty halls, thankful that the three of us didn't have a class this period, and I pushed some hair away from my face.
"Goodness, Edward really did a number on you," Ben said with a growl leaving his lips, as he balled up his fists, and he shook his head. "If it were me, I would never allow him to get to know Renesmee. He just doesn't deserve it, Bella."
"It's not my choice. If Renesmee wants to get to know him, I won't stop her. We all know when she was growing up, she wanted to meet him and the rest of them. The only people I am not so mad at are Jasper, Emmett, Rosalie, Carlisle, and Esme."
I still couldn't get over the fact that Bella was here, along with the fact that girl that looked to be about my age, was her daughter. How was that even possible? When I got close enough, I found out that I was her father from the thoughts that was running through her head. She was the spitting image of Bella, which was dangerous because our daughter was really beautiful.
"You know… if we never left, we wouldn't have missed her birth," Rosalie grumbled, as she crossed her arms over her chest, and she shook her head. "It's because of your stupid judgment that we all weren't there for either one of them, Edward."
"Come on, Rose… stop," Emmett said to Rosalie, as he grasped her hand, and he shook his head. "Edward feels really bad about this."
"He should feel horrible! I swear… I am not even close to being done with you," Rosalie growled, as she let Emmett drag her away, and she glared at me, while she could.
"It's going to take Rose to forgive you," Jasper mumbled. "But this really is my fault. If I hadn't tried to go after Bella that night, everything would be fine."
"Jasper, how many times do Alice and I have to tell you that it wasn't your fault? Don't even argue with me on this one because I'm not in the mood," Edward said, as I played with my food with the fork that was in my hand.
If it wasn't for my wonderful husband's actions, I would have slapped Edward and then some. It was because of Edward that I wasn't there for Renesmee's birth. I should have at least been there for Bella but it seemed that she wasn't alone, which I was really grateful for. If she had done this all by herself, I knew without a doubt that both Jasper and Emmett would have to hold me back from my stupid brother.
"Rose, baby, come on," Emmett began, as he held my arms at arm's lengths, taking a glance in my eyes, frowning just the slightest. "We both know if Edward even knew about Bella being pregnant, he would have stayed. He's not the cruel and we both know that Alice and Carlisle would have taken care of Jasper no matter what…"
I really hated it when Emmett was right because I enjoyed being the right one in our relationship. It was just how it worked in my opinion. Then again, Emmett usually let me win most of the arguments or fights just so that we could break another one of our beds. There were times when we even broke a wall or two but I blamed that on Emmett because he just couldn't help himself when we were together.
"God, I know that, Emmett, but it's still not fair. I just wish that we could have been there for Bella and Renesmee. It just is not fair that we missed so many years of their lives," Rosalie shrugged.
"And here I thought you hated Bella," Emmett joked.
"We both know that's not true. I just hated the decision she was making."
"Well, do you still resent her for becoming a vampire?" Emmett asked me, as he kissed my knuckles upon my hands, and he smiled over at me.
"Emmett, she probably had no choice. From what Ben told us, Renesmee bit her way through Bella's stomach, and without Tanya, she would have died," Rosalie said with a shake of my head, as I looked over at him before I looked back to my husband, giving him a small smile on my face. "I do know that I want to find out what's been going on with Bella these last ten years."
"Well, why don't you just ask me?" Bella asked softly, as she looked in between Emmett and myself, a straight look on her pale face.
I turned my head, as I saw Bella, and I could see that goofy grin on my husband's face. He always liked Bella ever since Edward introduced her to us, and for that, I was pretty grateful. I then looked away from Emmett's huge ass smile to Bella's face. I could definitely see that she was still angry and I felt so horrible that Edward had caused this.
